That looks like a Fox .15 on there Kim? It also looks like a old Darwin brass tank. That would be a nice combo.

Jim...ya dry sump...trans is all pressure fed  through the shafts by the oil pump with the engine oil....Had been in storage since 2007 until last spring. Spent a week cleaning and polishing...then rode it all last summer. Good to get in the wind again. Gets lots of looks!

Jim, in the event you decided to build one of these. If you can find a PDQ version, your better off for a few reasons. First the PDQ kit will be heavier ( Not always good) but it will endure hangar and flying rash. The Brodak version is a real toilet, while it's light, it has a built up leading edge and cap strips and spars. Spars are not needed in this wing if built correctly. PDQ used solid leading and trailing edges, that was the strength of the wing and it will endure ground poundings. Ribs were 3/32" vs 1/16" and the fuselage of the PDQ is like a cricket bat. One shot into the ground even a mishap with the Brodak and the nose breaks off in front of the leading edge. The Brodak kit has it's doublers too short and they have a huge square cutout in the inboard side making it even weaker.
